Boardmasters music and surfing festival has unveiled the first wave of more than 30 acts including two headline performers.

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and Florence + The Machine will headline the festival in Newquay, Cornwall, on 9-13 August 2023. Other acts announced include Little Simz, Four Tet, Bob Vylan and Example. Boardmasters is, in fact, the only festival in the country to secure Liam’s services for the summer of 2023.

The festival, which usually attracts about 50,000 people, is held at Watergate Bay and Fistral beach. Organisers said “tens of thousands” had already signed up for pre-sale tickets before the general release on Friday.

Beyond the music, festivalgoers will be able to sign up for the Surf and Adventure packages, which are geared towards people of all abilities and lessons will be available to fans throughout the event.

Local surf schools and expert instructors will provide these lessons and get attendees in the water.

Meanwhile, the Adventure packages will offer a broad range of experiences to festivalgoers, including coasteering, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and bodyboarding.

Boardmasters will once again bring together some of the biggest names in the music industry, as well as some of the most exciting surf talent.

Tickets for Boardmasters 2023 will go on sale on Friday, 25 November, with pre-sale tickets launching on Thursday. Fans can sign up to the pre-sale now at the event’s official website.

Elsewhere in Liam Gallagher news, the former Oasis frontman’s concert film, Knebworth 22 arrived in select UK cinemas for a limited time on 17 November, with a full streaming release on Paramount+ later this year.

“I’m still in shock that I got to play Knebworth 2 nights, 26 years after I played it with Oasis,” Gallagher said in a statement. “I’m still trying to get my head around it.

“To have played to multiple generations at the same venue so many years apart was beyond Biblical. I’m so glad that we documented it. Knebworth for me was and always will be a celebration of the fans as well as the music. Enjoy the film and let’s do it again in another 26 years. LG x.”
